Age of Wushu - Log off, get kidnapped, log back on and be in jail. EvE in ancient China.
Has anyone tried this?
So the gist of the game is it's old timey China and you are a martial arts type of dude who is going around in some kind of big battle.
As you might notice I really don't know much about this yet but the highlights I have seen are that it's a huge PvP world and when you log off your character persists in the world. Normally in an MMO you just disappear and pop back up next time. In this one your guy (or gal) stays online and becomes an NPC. Skills gain in an EvE type fashion in which you continue to level up even when you are offline.
The translation is a bit of a mishmosh so I am having to look around online a bit for getting a few of the basics down but it seems like it could be interesting enough to stay with for a little bit.
It's in beta right now but it's free to play for an hour a day. After it's released I am hearing that the time limit will be removed.
